In amongst the miserable wet & windy weather we have had, there have been sunny moments. When the sun is shining for a few hours, the room gets nice & warm. It is a good opportunity to get the spray bottle out & give the boys a misting.
The last couple of times they have had a misting with celery leaves. As Thomas has not been well, he declined one of the invitations to frolic in the leaves & stayed in the cage, but the other three all took advantage of the offer.
Yesterday, there was another opportunity for them all to have a misting. Cagney was first down to the landing platform & investigate the celery. This inspired Thomas & he dived into the leaves & got thoroughly wet. There was no room for the others so they had to temporarily take a back seat.

Thanks for leading the way, Cagney
Once Thomas had finished, Cagney took over & did the best he could with Phineas barring his way at every turn.

Bezukhov was desperate for a frolic in the leaves & had intermittent goes, before being put off by the others.
I dry off very quickly!
Phineas was the last to have a frolic. He had got a little wet accompanying Cagney but that was not a proper wash so when Cagney was busy preening, he spent some quality time with the celery & the spray bottle.

After all of that spraying, I was almost knee deep in water myself!
